Teacher Training & Teacher Assisting at HPSD
Students are assigned to a regular pre-ballet class to observe and take part in the teaching process.
Dedicated graduates of the Teacher Training program even have the opportunity to work as paid student faculty at HPSD, teaching their own Pre-Ballet classes!
Students who are eager to get started but not quite ready for the Teacher Training program have the option to help out as Teachers' Assistants. Teachers' Assistants help out around the studio with younger kids' classes by setting a positive example of listening and following directions, escorting dancers to the drinking fountain, taking attendance, and more. Dancers should be in Ballet IV or higher to volunteer as Teachers' Assistants.
